From Rolling Stone Magazine: “In 1970, Big Chief Bo Dollis & the Wild Magnolias released the single “Handa Wanda,” a party-ready mix of funky New Orleans percussion and Mardi Gras Indian chants. Dollis died in 2015 but his son Bo Jr. has followed in his footsteps as the Wild Magnolias’ new Big Chief. Dollis’ new album My Name Is Bo was produced by fellow NOLA royalty Cyril Neville and expertly blends Crescent City funk and Mardi Gras Indian music. The first release is a hypnotic, percussion-and-vocal rendition of the popular chant “Indians Here They Come,” which the Meters once recorded as the Wild Tchoupitoulas in 1976. It had been chanted in parades well before then, a testament to the resilience of Mardi Gras Indian culture, and to that of New Orleans in general.”
